of the market. how should investors play this such uncertain environment? >> well, turns out it's looking like a fiscal cliff hanger, doesn't it? up to the last minute. i think that investors tend to get caught up emotionally too much, and there's a couple things to do towards the end of the year. one is if you have not taken capital gains, going from 15% to 23.8%, do that monday. if you have a gain in a position, take it, buy it back right away, pay the tax at a lower rate. that's one of the things to do. also, make sure that next year you increase your 401(k) to 17,000 or 23,500 if you get the extra over 50 amount. take a roth 401(k) plan because that's more valuable as tax rates go up. ashley: good point. >> look at the conversions, the 529 plans, anything to be taxed hurts more. anything you can do as a consumer, and, of course, moonnies is more valuable next year as well. ashley: very good advice. you say don't sell in a down markets. put the cash to work. worried about catching the falling knife? >> not at all. the s&p500 up 15% going through the european crisis and the election. the mar

with other guests as well, that talked about the merger and acquisition environment. it is a glaring lack of activity. i don't want to make too much of it, take a look. you can see how they've done this year. in line with 2010. up ever so slightly from 2011. remember, we have record low borrowing rates in the high yield market, not to mention from banks as well. leverage ratios have crept up, so you can get debt that equals 5.5, or 6, or even more times the company you're acquiring. all of that would argue for more activity on the part of the leverage buyers. we've had jim woolery at jpmorgan saying, yeah, i can cut you a $10 million check. we haven't seen the big deals. one reason, simply put, flow begets flow. when there's a lot of activity, you get even more. there is a company looking to be shed of this business, or achoirs another business, they may look to shed another business as well. that might be an audience that private equity is part of. when you aren't having that level of activity, you may not get even more from the lbo. but something we've run up against lately does seem to
